Hi Mr Sam
Enjoyed seeing your pics of the blast shelter and Stanton shelter...good to see them so intact. :) Where there any other airfield buildings remaining, and if so do you have any pics of them? Be nice to see them if you do.

Cheers :)

That tower is a water tower which would originally have been located at one end of a domestic ablutions block (shower/toilet block).

Odd that just the one has been left standing, without the rest of the building!
